Dare is claiming a world record for the most tagged single photograph for a 360 degree image of Saturday’s cup final crowd. Fans can zoom in, find and tag themselves using Facebook

At the Wembley Stadium website, fans of Manchester City and Stoke City can pick themselves out in the 90,000 crowd thanks to a 10 gigapixel interactive image of the FA Cup Final crowd.

The image was created by photographer Jeffrey Martin from 360 Cities.net, which has previously created 360 degree images of London and Prague. After a practice run at the Semi-Final, Martin positioned himself on the half-way line at Saturday’s game taking 1000 individual images which were then edited and stitched together to have the 360 degree version uploaded 24 hours later (full details on how it was done here).

So far 12,584 fans have created tags on the image. You can also use it to find familiar faces in the crowd, such as Liam Gallagher

and designer and City fan Mark Farrow (in the blue jumper, looking nervous)

 

There are also some quite interesting, unintended weird effects created by the joining together of individual images, like this ghostly linesman
